How about now?

Back when I was in high school, a few friends and I started a tradition of an annual “girls’ night” on or around February 14th. Going off to different colleges forced us to skip a few years, and new friends are added as others move away, but we’re still trying to keep up the tradition. This year, we met a few days before Valentine’s Day, to accommodate the girls with boyfriends… or husbands. (Wow, I feel old.)

One girl supplied the nailpolish, another was in charge of movies. (We ended up watching my favorite: Love, Actually.) Someone else brought wine (red, of course), and it was my job to bring the dessert.

(Surprised?)

Wanting to make something fun and fancy, I decided on pie—chocolate truffle pie. I just kept adding ingredients to the vita-mix, tasting as I went along (best part!). Here was the final, delicious result:

NO sugar, NO flour, no-bake recipe... Ingredients: 3 cups strawberries, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 1/2 cups... Full recipe: https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/02/16/chocolate-strawberry-truffle-pie/

Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Pie

4.75/5 (4)

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups strawberries, or berries of choice (250g)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp dutch or additional regular cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cup raw cashews or macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup agave or pure maple syrup, or 1/8 tsp uncut stevia
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  • In a bowl, cover the cashews with water and let sit at least 4 hours. Then drain and pat dry. Combine all ingredients in a Vita-Mix or high-powered blender or food processor. Only if using stevia, add 4 tablespoons water. Blend until a super-smooth texture is achieved. Taste and add more sweetener until desired taste is reached. Pour into a prepared pie crust (see below the next photo for a crust recommendation), and freeze.

Notes

For crust, I highly recommend this Healthy Chocolate Pie Crust.

(That’s not actually the hot chocolate crust in the photo. I ran out of time to make a homemade crust before the party. But if I’d had time, I would’ve made the hot chocolate one… An excuse to make this pie again!)

If you can’t have nuts, try this recipe: Nut-Free Chocolate Silk Pie.

(I’ve included the above link because I know many of my readers have nut allergies, and I’m sure people are going to ask!)

What do you think of raw desserts?

Although I seriously doubt I’ll ever become a raw foodist, some of my favorite desserts are raw: my fudge babies, mint-chocolate milkshakes, chocolate-raspberry cake, coconut cream pie…

    I made this- it came out delicious. I soaked the cashews before leaving for work so they were nice and soft when I got home and was able to make it immediately. I did not melt the coconut oil down first which I think made it not as smooth, so I definitely recommend melting the oil first, also I used a food processor and it wasn’t completely smooth, so a high speed blender is probably a better option.

    5/5

    Alright made the chocolate Strawberry Truffle pie and it stated to put it in the freezer. How long does it need to stay there? After you take it out how long do you let it sit out ?
